Hamas and the Palestinians

Posted by Richard on January 28, 2006

Many Western commentators have expressed shock and disappointment at the huge Hamas victory in the Palestinian Authority elections. "This may mean the end of the peace process," they cry. To which I reply, "What peace process, you fool?"

The Palestinian electorate didn’t choose Hamas over Fatah because the former wants to kill all the Jews and the latter wants a peaceful settlement. The peaceful settlement part is nonsense — Western wishful thinking. They both want to kill all the Jews. The difference between them is more a matter of presentation and posturing (and corruption) than anything else.

Fatah, the child of the murderous thug Arafat, wants to continue doing what Arafat did successfully for years: con the Europeans and Americans into providing billions of dollars in the vain hope that it will lead to a "peaceful settlement," enabling the PA leadership to continue their corrupt and decadent lifestyle while their people live in poverty, squalor, and hopelessness.

Arafat, Abbas, and the PA leadership routinely spoke of peace and accommodation to the West, while assuring their own people that the ultimate goal will always be "Palestine from the river to the sea," the total destruction of Israel, and the death of all Jews. They talked to Westerners about the "occupied territories" as if they meant Gaza and the West Bank, occupied by Israel after the 1967 war. But the very name "Fatah" comes from the Fatah Revolution of 1965, when Arafat founded the PLO in order to destroy Israel and end the "Zionist occupation" as it then existed.

Hamas, the child of Saudi Wahhabism, is less corrupt and duplicitous, and makes (so far) little or no attempt to soften its message for Western ears: the goal is to destroy Israel, kill all the Jews, and reclaim all of Palestine, and the means to that goal are terrorism and martyrdom. In fact, it sometimes seems that to the Wahhabis of Hamas, martyrdom is an end in itself. A Hamas election video bragged (emphasis added):

We succeeded, with Allah’s grace, to raise an ideological generation that loves death like our enemies love life. We will not abandon the way of Jihad and Shahada [Martyrdom] as long as one inch of our holy land is in the hands of the Jews.

The Jerusalem Post reprinted the martyr’s oath from the Hamas charter. Here’s a sample:

The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: ‘The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and trees. The stones and trees will say O Muslims, O Abdulla, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him…’
Resisting and quelling the enemy become the individual duty of every Muslim, male or female. A woman can go out to fight the enemy without her husband’s permission, and so does the slave: without his master’s permission…

There is no solution for the Palestinian question except through Jihad. Initiatives, proposals and international conferences are all a waste of time and vain endeavors. ...

Palestinian Media Watch has a wealth of documentation on what Hamas, Fatah, and the PA leadership have been saying for years, and it’s all of the same cloth. See, for instance:

PA Promotion of Racism and Anti-Semitism

Denying Israel’s Right to Exist and Anticipating its Destruction

Is the Palestinian Goal A Peace Agreement or “Hudna” [cease fire]?

Or go to their Latest Bulletins page and just keep scrolling for as long as your stomach can take it.

There is one possible benefit to the Hamas landslide. Their Wahhabi roots, their unabashed advocacy of jihad, their open bragging that they won’t rest until all Jews are dead and all Christians are subjugated — these things may cause the Bush administration to finally stop giving $400 million a year to this tribe of uncivilized murderous savages. Then, perhaps, we’ll no longer have American tax dollars directly and indirectly funding and supporting terrorism.
